Cons of the Rogue Pro
Alternatives to the Rogue Pro
Alternatives to the Rogue Pro are:
The SR3 jump rope is the bread and butter model in the CrossFit community. If you are annoyed with the jump rope from the local shop and want to start with double unders, this is the one for you. It is part of many of the Rogue equipment packages and can also be bought in bulk to outfit an affiliate or college gym.
The SR1 jump rope is an alternative to get a bearing jump rope on the cheap. The SR1 also has bearing to make the rope run smoothly but the handles are not made of Aluminium. This makes them lighter and more cost-efficient at the expense of being easier to break.
Summary for Rogue Pro
If you have the money to spend and don’t have weightlifting shoes yet, this is the one to go for. If you want a fast heavy rope, have fun with this.
